About Farobag

As a double degree graduate of the University of Rochester and the Eastman School of Music with decades of teaching experience ranging from secondary through the collegiate levels in math and music, tutoring need not be a measure of last resort to merely achieve a passing grade but, even if it is, I will help raise the student's awareness of the chosen field and its interdependence to other areas of learning via a methodology that underscores competency and does not permit failure.

Whether it be the 3 Rs or preparation in the performing arts, a remarkable instructor must go well beyond the subject matter at hand and help imbue the student with a spirit of wonder that, in due time, will foster enthusiasm necessary for excellence.

A child emulates and learns to communicate in his or her mother-tongue through a supporting and nurturing environment. Likewise, a student needs to be sufficiently motivated to embrace learning in a familiar supportive manner.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Ear Training

I earned a Bachelor of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music and, shortly thereafter, in 1985, became the music director of the Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra - a position that I still hold today. I also teach piano, violin, and voice at The Music Connection in the southwest suburbs of Chicago and have taught various music courses at Governors State University.

Being a voice instructor, ear training is one of the most important concepts to be mastered by any vocalist.

General Music

I earned a Bachelor of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music and, shortly thereafter (in 1985) became the music director of the Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra - a position that I still hold today - and have taught various general music courses at Governors State University.

I earned a Bachelor of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music and have taken several doctorate level courses in music history at the University of Chicago. I have also taught various music courses at Governors State University.

As a vocal instructor, sight singing is an essential element to master for any serious vocalist.

Great math tutor. Brushed up on math skills I hadn't used in years. — Before working with this tutor I did not believe I had a very good chance of doing well on the math portion of the GRE. I have been out of college for almost ten years and although I did well in math, had not been using those skills in my daily life. During the lessons Farobag presented a series of challenging math problems for me to solve. Some of them I was completely stumped on, but he would gi ...
